Welcome to Parque Nacional Desembarco del Granma
This Unesco World Heritage Site protects some of the Americas' most pristine coastal cliffs. Of 512 plant species identified thus far, about 60% are endemic, with a dozen found only here. Fauna is equally rich, with 25 species of mollusk, seven species of amphibian, 44 types of reptile, 110 bird species and 13 types of mammal.
In El Guafe, archaeologists have uncovered Cuba's second-most important community of ancient agriculturists and ceramic-makers. Thousand-year-old artifacts include altars, carved stones and earthen vessels along with idols guarding a water goddess inside a ceremonial cave.
There's two main access points: Las Coloradas and the village of Alegrio de Pio.
